CDE, but that's still not an option... :(

Probably Enlightenment then.

Cinnamon gets better and better. It's near cutting edge but stable.

I chose plasma, but lxde (on MX18) is a real close second...

Torn between KDE and TDE... *sigh*

Simple and elegant.

I just picked Gnome by default, since Ubuntu went back to it, I do like their implementation of it, always like the streamlined, simple nature of their desktop.

Also like that easy to use way of adding tweaks, my mind has gone blank and I'm on my Windows laptop this morning, but that web site you can go to and just click ON to add a program, YOU all know what I mean!! :redface::hattip::)

Voted Rox.

I started my GNU/Linux journey with Gnome2 and went from there to Xfce then MATE. MATE is my clear favorite.

I would like to return to KDE4, but I moved on to xfce.

Really?
 
I'm going to laugh if anyone voted for LXDE. I can't imagine anyone actually thinking of it as a decent desktop experience.

Sure, it's lightweight, but a GUI needs more than "speed" to be focused on when it comes to usability.

Still like LXDE

I didn't vote LXDE, but I do use it on my netbook for which it's pretty much perfect. It can't really handle Xfce, and LXDE, which I've been running for over a year, is perfect for my needs on that machine. So think about it from a hardware perspective and what one needs - and expects - to do on particular computers.

I voted LXQt, as the LXDE next-gen. It's up and coming, as they say.

I've got Kali w/ LXDE loaded up on a flash-drive for the exact same reason. I don't like being bugged down by a DE when all I want is to run some basic tools. Doesn't mean I like LXDE. "Forced to use", would probably be the best thing to describe it in my case.

I think the move to LXQt was natural and I was going to vote for it considering the improvement I've noticed from LXDE, but I just went with my usual go-to. That said, I'm currently running the latest Lubuntu on my now 7 year-old laptop. It runs dandy and I can't see much other reason to use anything else on that thing. LXQt saved me from suffering with LXDE.

LXDE may have it's particular niche use-case, but comparing it to all the other desktops out there, I definitely think it lacks a lot—and I can even say that when comparing it just to LXQt.

I use Cinnamon day-to-day but voted Pantheon as the environment-of-the-year because I thought it was the most interesting and thought-provoking one, making waves this last year.
